In this paper some Chinese authors wrote that:
in a discipline, the knowledge body can be divided into a series of knowledge points, so we proposed and designed a discipline oriented common knowledge ontology base (KOB) to organize and store all the knowledge points and their relations in a discipline.
The term seems like a Chinglish transliteration, and I cannot find any such usage elsewhere, so I wonder if the concept (in exactly the same scenario as above) is idiomatic? If not, what is it in English? Maybe an information unit or a knowledge unit?
